South Korea had threatened to do this several weeks ago. The North immediately said they would shell the speakers. There was also an implied threat to take hostages of the several hundred South Koreans working at the Gaeseong Industrial Complex in North Korea. It will be interesting to see what the North's response is today, especially given their recent internal power shifts this month.

That’s inhumane. At least they’re not using Jose Feliciano’s “Feliz Navidad”. Yet.

Uh oh — if NK fires artillery shells at the speakers, Barry will have the crisis he wants and Biden will claim his “prophecy” came true

I vote for “Seasons in the Sun” by Terry Jacks (1974)

They wouldn’t have to do much to me. I’d prolly just “off” myself.

I never understood why South Korea was so foolish as to allow its citizens to go to this place while the Kim regime was still in power. Didn't anyone in Seoul think that these people could be used as bargaining chips?

Playing "Suicide is Painless" 24/7 would be ironic.

Gimme a big enough sound system and some Motorhead and we can take the NKs in a day!

If the situation continues to deteriorate, South Korea has threatened to use the ultimate weapon of mass destruction: the Time-Life Disco collection.

How about a little classical? I’d vote for Messaien’s Turangalila Symphonie, or maybe Charles Ives’ 4th...

A. The ROKs have always waged a Billboard War against the North along the DMZ. The North has huge signs declaring the great leader's attributes and the South has huge signs stating things like, "We have 50,000,000 cars."

B. The sixtieth anniversary of the North's invasion is in two weeks...June 25th.

I would have opened up with some classic Judas Priest “Screaming for Vengance”.

What this article is talking about is the broadcasting of pop music and propaganda over AM radio into North Korea. This is different from the propaganda speakers on the border which have not been turned on. South Korea has cancelled plans to turn on those speakers after the North threatened to shoot at them, Soeul backed down.

Perhaps they should broadcast infomercials. Once they see that the outside world spends outrageous amounts of money on useless crap they will revolt.
